Light and Space denotes a loosely affiliated art movement related to Op Art, Minimalism and geometric abstraction originating in Southern California in the 1960s and 1970s and influenced by John McLaughlin. The Light and Space Movement was characterized by a focus on perceptual phenomena, such as light, volume and scale, and the use of materials such as glass, neon, fluorescent lights, resin and cast acrylic, often forming installations conditioned by the work’s surroundings. Whether by directing the flow of natural light, embedding artificial light within objects or architecture, or by playing with light through the use of transparent, translucent or reflective materials, Light and Space artists made the spectator’s experience of light and other sensory phenomena under specific conditions the focus of their work. They were incorporating into their work the latest technologies of the Southern California based engineering and aerospace industries to develop sensuous light-filled objects.
